Here is a good link that shows acceptable rim widths and tire profiles. The chart is near the bottom of the page. There will be no fitment issues.

But why the 2.75?

SM to S

If anyone has experience with this it would be ok to show me a picture or something ... Thank you
I bought a SM that came with the enduro wheels as well as SM wheels. If I had it to do over I would buy the S. As mentioned above the USD forks aren't as good. But I've pounded them offroad and they seem fine to me. I ended up replacing the rear sprocket with a 46. Stock S is 14-47. I have 13-46. If you want to get rid of the large SM rotor you have to buy a new carrier I think. It's not cheap. I kind of like the look of the offroad tires on the stock SM rims- the TW lookalike. You can buy Continentals TKCs from procycle in Oregon. You will still need to regear it, but that's a $40 fix. The sidestand on the SM is also shorter than the S, so when you put the taller wheels and enduro tires on the bike really leans over. I find myself looking for rocks a lot. In the garage I put it on a brick. I should just buy a used S sidestand ($20). I think you can reprogram the speedo to adjust for the taller tires, but I've never figured it out. Some on here recommend a Vapor. Another $100 plus fix. All the rest of the farkles go right on, like the Clarke tank, moto-billet rack, skidplate. All in all, I don't think it's worth it. Get the S or an E.

Also how do you get the gas out of the right side of the tank to the pickup on the left side as the bottom of the sump is lower than the frame rail?

Thanks, Mac
I just tip the bike to the left and shake it to get gas in that lobe of the tank. As for gas consumption it is of course dependent on wrist position. In general running forest roads at an average speed of about 25-30 mph mixed with some tarmac travel I get in the 52-55 mpg ranged on my bike. Of course I have also gone as far as 220 miles on a tank (including reserve) and as little as 170 miles when on tarmac for extended periods. My bike has the three by three mod, stock carb, stock exhaust and has been re-jetted.

This has probably been covered but after looking through waaaaay to many pages I'll just ask.

I'm 6' 3" and need to lower my foot pegs. I just put on new pegs, stock height because I couldn't find a drop set for a 2011 model.

Anybody know of lowering blocks and/or where to get them for the dizzer?

Lower foor pegs

This may help. http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/846648-lower-footpeg/

Also do a web search on "lower foot pegs drz400" and you will find some other info.

A kill switch would work the same as a reset switch. One way to find out! Has anyone tried jumping the leads in the connector? Curious to know if it works.

Thanks, I've already checked these sources and it looks as though the Moose is about the only "store bought" option. Really I'd like to have a 1/2" back and 3/4" lower peg option. I have a 1/2" back and 1" down block on my KLR and with the addition of the taller ATV bars is a great fit.

May have to "manufacture" my own bolck....................

I ended up finding one on eBay, we'll see if it works.

Gotta ask... what are you up to? Any reason for the 2.75" preference?

Thanks guys, i want to order a set of shinko 244's, will like to get the 5.10-18 for the rear (which im sure will fit fine) and have two choices for the front, either the 3.00-21 or the 2.75-21, would like to get the 2.75-21 to keep the front narrow and the weight down as much as possible, not to mention i like the skinny front tire look to go with the wide rear tire look.

You may also consider a higher seat. I use and recommend the SDG Tall.

I'm the same height as you and want to do the same thing. I think it will come down to butchering my own pegs. Interested to hear how you go.

Just added a new SeatConcepts seat, helpful but dosn't do much for you when standing. Pretty sure I'm going this route with cables http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...parts_id=10013.
Still going to come up with a peg lowering block of some kind. A friend of mine has a milling/CNC machine in his garage workshop and I'm asking for help !
